He Issues a Manifesto to the World. Gladstone and Morley Handled With out Gloves. Ii He" Is Ousted From the Leadership He Will Continue to Worry the Liberals. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Nov. 28. — The manifesto 'vhich Parnell promised to issue today, dealing with all the questions involved m tiie present political crisis, was made public this afternoon, and definitely set tles the fact that Parnell will not volun tarily retire from the leadership. The manifesto is Cf great length and sets forth why, in Parnell's opinion, it would be disastrous to the best interests of the party for him to withdraw. Parnell de fies his political opponents and appeals to the people of Ireland to sustain him in the stand he has taken. He begins by saying: "Tbe integrity and independence of a section of the Irish parliamentary party having been apparently sapped and destroyed |by the wire-pullers of the Liberal party, it has become necessary for me, as the leader of the Irish party, to take counsel with you, and, having given you the knowledge which is in my possession, ask your judgment upon a matter which now solely devolves upon you to decide. A letter from Gladstone to Morley, written for the purpose of influencing the decision of the Irish party in the choice of a leader, and claiming for the Liberals and their leaders the right of veto upon their choice, is the immediate cause of this address, the purpose of which is to remind you and your parlia mentary representatives that Ireland considers the independence of her party as her only safeguard within the consti tution, and above and beyond all other considerations whatever. The threat in that letter, repeated so insolently in many platforms and in numerous British newspapers, compels me to put before you information which previous to this lime has been solely in my possession, and which will enable ycu to understand tbe measure of the loss which you are threatened with, unless you consent to throw me to the English wolves now howling for my destruction." Parnell then tells how at Hawarden, last November, he received from Glad stone the details of that gentleman and his colleague's proposal with regard to home rule in the event of the next gen eral election favoring the Liberal party. Upon the subject of the Irish members in the imperial parliament, Gladstone told him that in order to conciliate Eng lish public opinion it would be necessary to reduce the Irish representatives from 103 to 32. Upon the settlement of tbe land ques tion, Gladstone intimated that while he would renew his attempt to settle the matter hy imperial legislation on the lines of the land purchase bill of 188ii,he would not undertake to put any pressure upon his own side; in other words, that Irish legislation was not to be given the power of settling agrarian difficulties. With regard to the control of the Irish constabulary, it was stated by Glad stone, that in view of the necessity of conciliating English public opinion, it would be necessary to leave this force, as to the appointment of its officers, un der the control of imperial authority, for an indefinite period, while the funds for its maintenance would be compulso rily provided out of the Irish revenue. A period of ten or twelve years was sug gested as tho limit of the time during which the appointment of judges and resident magistrates should be retained in the hands of imperial authorities. Passing to the expressions on these points, which Parnell says represent his views, then and now, he says with regard to the retention of the Irish mem bers, that he holds that with the con cession of full powers to an Irish legis lature, equivalent to those of a state of the American union, the number and position of members so retained would become a question of imperial concern and not of pressing or immediate importance for the interest of Ireland; but with that important and all-engrossing subjects of agrarian re form, constabulary and judicial appoint ments left either under imperial control or totally unprovided for. it would be the height of madness for any Irish leader to imitate Grattan's example and consent to disband an army which has cleared the way to victory. "I further undertook," says Parnell, "to use every legitimate influence to reconcile Irish public opinion to tho gradual coming into force of new privi leges and to the postponement necessary for tha conciliation of English opinion with regard to constabulary control and judicial appointments; but I strongly dissented from the proposed reduction of the number ot members during the interval of probation, and pointed to the absence of any suitable project of land settlenient by either parliament as a con stitutional and overwhelming drag upon the prospects of permanent peace and prosperity in Ireland." At the conclusion of the interview, Parnell was informed that, pending the general election, Gladstone and his col leagues were agreed that silence should be preserved with regard to these points of difference. The absence of any pro vision for the settlement of the agrarian question or any policy on the part of the Liberal leaders, Parnell says, filled him with concern and apprehension. On the introduction of the land pur chase bill by the government at tho commencement of the last session, Mor ley conferred with him with regard to the avowed absence of any policy on the part of the Liberals. Parliell strongly advised Morley against any direct chal lenge on the principle "of state-aided land purchase, and that they should direct their efforts on second reading to the assertion of the principle of local control. In this Morley agreed with him, but was at the same time hampered by the extreme section of his party, led by Labouchere, and in a sub sequent interview impressed upon Par nell the necessity of meeting the reading of the bill with a strict negative, and asked him to undertake the motion. "I agreed, - ' says Parnell, "on the con dition that I was not to attack the prin ciple of the measure, but confine myself to criticism of its details. I think his was strategy, but it was a strat egy adopted out of regard to English prejudice and radical peculiarities. I did the best possible under the circum stances, and the several days' debate on the second reading, contrasts favorably with Labouchere'B recent abortive at tempt to interpose a direct negative to the first reading of a similar bill yes terday." .Just before the commencement of this session, Parnell had another interview with Morley, and impressed upon him the impolicy of an oblique method of procedure with reference to land pur chase, and the necessity and importance of providing for the question of local control and limitation in the application of the funds. "He agreed with me," says Parnell, "and I offered to move on iiic ui'et fe&uillg Oi the uin, an amend ment in favor of this local control, ad vising that if this was rejected, it might be left to the radicals on second reading to oppose the principle of the measure. I left Morley under the impression that this would be my duty, but in addition he made a remarkable proposal. Re ferring to the probable approaching vic tory of the liberals he suggested some considerations as to the future of the Irish party, and asked me whether I would be willing to assume the offlce of chief secretary for Ireland, or whether I would allow another member to take that position. He also put before me the desirability of filling one of the law offices of the crown in Ireland by a legal member of my party. I told him, amazed as I was at the proposal, that I could not agree to forfeit In any wav the independence of the party or its mem bers. The Irish people had trusted me because they believed the declaration I made in Cork, in 1880, represented my conviction, and thai I would on no ac count depart from it. "I consider Morley'a proposal that we should allow ourselves to be absorbed into English politics, as one based upon an entire misconception of our position. In conclusion Morley directed my at tention to a plan of campaign, in regard to estates. He said it would be impos sible for the Liberal party, when it at tained power, to do anything for these evicted tenants by direct action, and it would also be impossible for the Irish parliament under the powers cdhferred, to do anything for them, and, flinging up his hands with a gesture of despair, lie exclaimed: 'Having been in Tipper try, Ido not know what to propose.' I told him this question was a limited one; funds would be available from America and elsewhere for the support of those tenants as long as necessary, and this difficulty should not be allowed to interfere with the general interests of the country." Parnell says he alludes to this matter only because within the last few days a strong argument for his expulsion was that unless Liberals come into power at the next election, the plan-of-campaign tenauts will suffer. He has shown that the Lib erals propose doing nothing for them, and is entitled to ask that the existence of these tenants whom he has supported in every way in the past, and will con tinue to support, shall not constitute a reason for his expulsion from Irish poli tics. Parnell says .hat during the ten years of independence of the Irish parliament ary party it has, because of its inde pendence, forced upon the English peo ple the necessity of granting home rule to Ireland. He believes the party will obtain home rule, provided it remains independent of any English party. In conclusion he says: "I do not be lieve any action of the Irish people in supporting me will endanger the homo rule cause or postpone the establishment of an Irish parliament, but even if dan ger were to be realized, I believe the Irish people throughout the world would agree with me that postponement would be preferable to compromise of our na tional rights by the acceptance of a measure which would not realize the aspirations of our race." A COUNTER MANIFESTO, Uladstone Preparing One—Roth Parties' Future Tactics. London, Nov. 28.—1t is reported Glad stone will issue a counter manifesto. Gladstone today held a conference with Earl Spencer and Morley. It is stated that even if Parnell is out voted at Monday's election, he will stick to his seat for Cork and lntrrass the Liberals as much as possible. In case the Irish nationalist members, at their meeting Monday, favor Parnell, a movement will immediately be started among the Liberals to give English re forms precedence over home rule, and a meeting to advocate reverting to the programme of 18S5 will be summoned. Sir William Vernon Harcourt, it is be lieved, will succeed Gladstone in the leadership of the Liberal party in the event of the latter retiring. An important section of the Parnellites met in the commons tonight, and re polved upon action to combat the in fluence of the manifesto resulting in the appearance of a breach of faith. The meeting adjourned to get the opinion of the delegates in America. THE AMERICAN DELEGATES. Their Decision Predicted to Be Against Parnell. Cincinnati, Nov. 28.—Dillon, Harring ton, O'Connor, Gill, O'Brien and Sulli van held a secret conference tonight. In response to interrogations, word was sent out saying that all the statements of their views on the present position of the Irißh party, were entirely unauthorized. The delegates have made no communication to the press as to their opinions and do not intend to do so for the present. A large number of telegrams have been received, and the general opinion among those who have studied the situ ation is that the decision of the confer ence will be against Parnell as leader. O'Brien's name has been mentioned as a possible leader, but it is said here -hat j O'Brien himself would probably suggest | some other man, such as Justin Me- • Carthy. London, Nov. 28.—N0 reply has be: i. received from Dillon and O'Brien. The •trained relations between the secti SATURDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1890. of the Parnellite party are becoming marked. Parnell's supporters complain that his opponents are using unusual methods against him. They believe the American delegates have been misled, and have cabled warning thetu not to accept the first version of the meeting as correct, and describing the proceedings from their own point of view. The opponents of Par nell take it for granted that. O'Connor', Sullivan and Harrington will follow the lead of O'Brien and Dillon, and unite in the attempt to depose Parnell. They think Gill's support of this movement is doubtful.- They consider that Parnoll has been totally misinformed regarding the views of the Irish people generally. They believe his manifesto will decrease his hold upon the country and further damage his position. His opponents are preparing a counter manifesto. OPPOSED TO PARNELL. Fifty-three Irish Members Will Voto Against Him. London, Nov. 28. —A canvass has been conducted by the members of the Irish parliamentary party opposed to Par nell's retention of the leiulprshin, witfi the view of ascertaining how the vote is likely to go at Monday's meeting. Tho result was the securing of fifty-three members tovote againstParnell. Among them are: Condor, Deasy, John Dillon, Esinonde, Finucane, Timothy Harring ton, Timothy Healev, Maurice Healv, Justin McCarthy, J. F. X. O'Brien, Pat rick O'Brien, J. O'Brien, Roche, Sexton, Sheehan, Sheehy, Tanner, and Webb. The anti-Parnellites also rely upon the votes of William O'Brien, T. P. O'Con nor, T. P. Gill, andT. D. Sullivan. The adherents of Parnell who an nounced their intention to stick to the old leader, number 23, namely : Byrne, Henry Campbell, Conway, W. J. Cor bet, J. G. Fitzgerald, Edward Harring ton, Hay den, J. E. Kennedy, W. A. Mac Donald, MacNeil, Maguire, Maho ney, J, P. Nolan, Joseph Nolan, John O'Connor, O'Kelly, Pinkerton, P. J. Power, Richard Power, John Redmond William Redmond and Sheil. Both the supporters and opponents of Parnell in the Irish Parliamentary party, have agreed not to hold meetings or begin popular agitation regarding the nationalist leadership, until after the meeting Monday. TRESS OPINION. The Papers Comment at Length on Tar nell's Manifesto. London, Nov. 28.—A1l the papers comment at great length on Parnell's manifesto. The Post says: "The bomb has been exploded in anger, aud Parnell turns the evidence against the low conspira tors to save his own political life. The manifesto has rendered the prospects for home rule worse than at any time since 1885." The Daily News says: "This is tbe last fatal rlis-scrvice which obliterates many, if not all, of his incomparable services." The News appeals to the Irish clergy and people not to allow Parnell to drag down the home rule cause in his own fall, by belief in the serious misappre hensions of their English friends. The Chronicle says: "Parnell's most powerful blow is the revelation of the abjec. paralysis of the Gladatonian party over the land question, and Mor ley's confession of their inability to as sist the sufferers from the plan of campaign. The manifesto shows that Parnell is not a person with whom any statesman can venture to hold confidential relations. Irish in gratitude in politics is proverbial, but was never before avowed with such cold calculating cynicism." The Standard says : The manifesto is highly damaging to the credit of Glad stone and Morley as straightforward statesmen. No English politician will ever trust Parnell again, but he has chosen the right line to win back the fanatical regard of Irishmen." Tho Times says: "The manifesto shatters for ever the supposition that Parneil can ever again be treated as a trustworthy friend or honorable foe. It is probably the most shameless document of English public life seen since the days of tbe revolution." Tho Times thinks, however, that it will probably effect its purpose in Ire land, and refers to the severity of the blow inflicted on Gladstone's impractica ble schemes. CONDENSED TELEGRAMS.

Advices From Other Sources Not So Encouraging-. A Good Deal of Deviltry Going on in Dakota. Sitting Bull Still Dancing With All His Might and Making Dire Threats. | Associated Press Dispatches. Washington, Nov. 28.—The war de- I partuient is in receipt of a number of I dispatches from the seat of the Indian tumble, all indicating an improvement in the situation. General Brooke says every day lessens the strength of the disaffected. Little Wound has come into Tine Ridge agency, and his brother braves are following him. Short Bull, of Rosebud agency, one of the most ' troublesome of the" Sioux, and his fol- I lowers, to the number of 500 lodges, re turned to Pine Ridge Thursday. Acting Indian Commissioner Belt to day received a telegram from Agent Dixon, at Crow Creek agency, S. D., saying noneof hislndians have"yet been dancing. A small band of Lower Brules, near Rosebud reservation, have been dancing, and he has dispatched a force of police and scouts to stop it. He has also called home all the Indians having passes to leave the reservation, and says he considers it impossible-to be sur prised in any outbreak the Lower Brules may make." Chambeblauv, S. D., Nov. 28.—The Lower Brule Indian police last night started in to break up the ghost dances, and today eight leading dancers are in jail at the agency. Another dance is ; reported as organizing for tonight, and j the police are ready for it. Affairs are I lively for the time, but the police are j too much for the adherents of the new j Messiah. No danger of an outbreak is feared. Bristol, S. D., Nov. 28. —Much ex j cittmeut was created here this morning |by a report brought in by a stranger j that Indians were atPierpont and Lang ford, and that the town of Pierpont had I been burned. Later in the afternoon it I was learned that the whole thing was a | scare, and the reported burning of Pier i pout is discredited. New \okk, Nov. 28.—A Philadelphia special says: Dr. N.T. Gilcuddy, former ' ngeut at Pine Ridge, telegraphs Herbert j Welsh, that the newspaper report of the i Pine Ridge situation is misleading, j Matters are under control. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 28. —A special to i tho Bee from Pine Ridge says: The beef j issue passed off yesterday without any j exciting features. One hundred and I ninety steers were turned loose. Hawk i Head and Big Horse, reliable Indian po | licomen, have reached the agency with j news that their families have been ! stolen by a band oi 200 Indians that had deserted from Rosebud a I few hours before and lushed off ito join 1300 other Indians. The de i serters are now only fifteen miles north- I east of I'ine Ridge agency. When : Hawk Head and Big Horse discovered i that their families were missing, they j immediately set out in pursuit of the j deserters. The latter refused to give up ! the families. The policemen begged and entreated the deserters to give them ! back their wives and children, but only i got curses and threats against their lives. Before they got away from the | band members of the latter said: "Go tell the soldiers as Pine Ridge we are ; part of 1300 other Rosebud Indiaus now j near Pine Ridge, and from now on we ' are going to kill every white person we ! meet, and if the soldiers come we are ; ready for them." ! It is predicted by the Bee correspond j ent that within thirty-six hours the j troops will be ordered to disarm or shoot j down the murderers, and when the I troops do start after them, the end will !be no Custer affair. A move will un | doubtedly be made under cover of dark ness, and by a forced march the attack and finish will both occur between the rising and the setting of the moon. The scene o£ action will be some fifteen or twenty miles northeast of the agency. Pine Ridof. Agency, Nov. 28.—Little Wound is in and reports his inability to control liis band in the interests of peace. The cavalry expects an order to march tonight on the Rosebud camp on the Porcupine, although General Brooke is reported as being in favor of waiting until the Sixth cavalry reaches Fort Meade, and troops can be placed at Forest City, above Pierre. Mandan, Nov. 28.—Word comes from Sitting Bull's camp from different sources, that he is dancing his men more vigorously than ever, and compell ing the children to join in the dance. He is reported to be more hostile and determined to fight than ever. This afternoon two companies of cavalry arrived from Fort Custer, and proceeded to Fort Yates. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 28.—A Bee special from Rosebud agency says about fifty young bucks are out raiding the country, destroying deserted settler's houses, school houses, etc. This gang can break up any time after their work of destruc tion, or by allying themselves with the' hostiles, can destroy all the todder and run off all the horses and cattle on the reservation. A Ree Pine Ridge special says: This afternoon a friendly Indian came in to Agent Royer with the rather startling report that over 2000 Indians at Wounded Knee had resumed the ghost dances, with warlike accompaniments. He said they were formed in regular war dance, and were swearing vengeance against the whites for conspiring to stop them. The Indians said they were re solved to resist interference to the last man. Little Wound, who left the agency yesterday with protestations that his men had stopped dancing, was in the dance with all his band. The friendly Indian further said the dancers were still burning the houses of settlers and killing all the cattle they could find. The Needles Fire. Needles, Cal.. Nov. 28.—Fire in Mon aghan & Murphy's warehouse and oil room, yesterday, destroyed two build ings and about $5000 worth of property. This, added to the damage done to the goods removed from the main building, makes their loss about $7000. The fire originated in the oil room, but the cause is unknown. The heroic work of the railroad men saved the town from de struction. A BIKNING STEAMBOAT. All on Board Compelled to Swim Ashore or Drown. New Orleans, La., Nov. 28. —A tele phone message from Bayou Hara gives ; the following particulars of the loss of j the steamer T. P. Weathers, yesterday. I The lire was first discovered amidships, ; starboard side, in a pile of eackß of seed, j surrounded by tiers of cotton bales. 1 The boat was in midstream under way. | | The fire had gotten such a hold upon the ; j inflammable material that it was impos ; sible to extinguish it. The captain j 1 ordered the boat headed for a landing, i I The passengers and crew ran about the ' 1 burning vessel, crazed with terror. The | : people gathered on the front deck to be j as near the shore as possible,and waited | there as long as they could, while the | ! steamer was being driven in under lull I j steam. As the boat neared the bank, those of the rousters who could swim, I began to jump into the river,and before : the boat was within a hundred yards oi the bank, the water around her was . black with struggling men. The officers I ■of the boat stood to their posts and aid ] : all they could to prevent the frightened j \ passengers from jumping into the river. ; When the boat got within a few bun- < | died feet of the bank even the forcdeck j | became so hot that it was impossible to ! ! stay there, and all on board were com- ! I pelled to jump for their lives. Most of j I them were provided with life-preservers, 1 j and it is believed all those who waited until the last minute to jump, got safely Ito the shore. Lucy Hill, first chamber- j ■ maid, jumped from the cabin deck and < | broke her leg. Those known to have j j been drowned are: McMorris, steward; i the first cook, named Walker; Texas I Tender, Hamilton Jones, and a rouster named Wright, all colored, and a white ; ; deck passenger, name not known. | New York, Nov. 28.—The Herald's i New Orleans special assertß that seven teen lives were lost by the burning of the steamer.
